(Be Luminous On Our Mission)

May 5 - 7,  2017 - Mountain Top Retreat

Valley View Ranch

606 Valley View Ranch Rd. Cloudland, GA 30731

(2.5 hrs. from Nashville, TN.  -  2 hrs.  from Atlanta, GA -  1 hr.  from Chattanooga, TN.)

So you're asking yourself, "Luminous...Mission ?? What the heck is Teri talking about?!"


In short, this is an invitation to show up, breathe, connect (to self, nature and others), un-pack, rejuvenate, laugh, ponder, set an intention, commit to YOU, hike, canoe/kayak, grab a porch swing, eat healthy, stretch beyond, grow....breathe. Plug into life while releasing those old non-serving ways, thoughts, ideas and behaviors so that you can BLOOM and begin nurturing your gifts, your know, your life!

This weekend isn’t your “normal” self-care weekend…It's designed designed to help folks recognize pesky “triggers” which have us repeating self-sabotaging cycles in such areas as: Self-love, Relationships, Communication, Goals, Health, etc.,style is one which invites self-reflection, transformational shifts and laughter!

What’s on the table? 

Workshops/Discussions in, around and on:

*Emotional Regulation - Understanding effective ways to coexist with difficult folks, even when that person is us. 

*Awareness around what LOSS and GRIEF are and how they can manipulate your choices and hijack your life. Define and  recognizing “triggers” – blueprint healthy ways to defuse those emotional charges.  

*Healthy Boundaries - "Adulting" can be exhausting when “our little” calls the shots.  What energy do you invite in?

What energy you give away? 

*Unraveling organized chaos tied to our Self-Sabotaging Cycles - Look at the ways we unknowingly Self-Sabotage our dreams, goals, hopes, relationships, even others happiness-Rediscover the beauty, gift and awesomeness of YOU!

*The importance of your “Next Right Step” -  Self-Care & Love – Permission to breathe life into YOUR Dream (get your hands dirty) - What feeds your soul? More importantly...What’s holding you back? Then redefine your intentions.


*Mindfulness and what it means to B.L.O.O.M - Realign with the whole, healthy person you ARE as you take steps to tap into you Joy, Peace and Clarity…and take away tools to set which will afford you to continue moving into the direction of your highest and best!

Other scheduled activities around session work are:

Fire Circle - Evening fire circles for sharing and reflection. Weather permitting a Burning Bowl Ceremony Saturday evening.

A burning bowl ceremony is a fire ceremony that helps us release old, unwanted conditions. It clears the way for new beginnings. It is a wonderful way of letting go

Sage Circle - We will come together sharing our individual wisdom and leaning into new awareness


Intention Rooted Hike - To and around the Labyrinth for introspect and self- realization.

 Labyrinth - pictured in photos: An intricate path by which one practices intention and mindfulness. A silent practice.
